Travis Edward Day

November 6, 1986 — March 17, 2018

Travis Edward Day, loving father, son, brother, favorite uncle and friend to all passed away unexpectedly on March 17, 2018.

Travis has smile that would light up a room tilt of his head and a sideways grin. He enjoyed being a jokester! He loved to spend time in the outdoors by a camp fire with good friends and family by his side. When Travis laughed, it was contagious to all. Travis was always there to give a hug, or share uplifting words when those around him needed a little extra lift. He attributed his faithful and beloved dog, Dino for saving his life on several occasions; their companionship was a beautiful sight.

Travis began his journey on November 6, 1986 when he was born to Dennis and Starlyn Day in Cumberland, Maryland. He has Justin Day as a brother, and they truly were brothers in all they did. Growing up, he loved being outside playing in the woods where he lived. He and Justin were always infatuated with automobiles and would find every way to pretend they were driving. He gained a greater appreciation for cars while working on them with his step-father. He dreamed of becoming a mechanic, restoring old cars and trucks.

Travis was 15 years old when he moved to Pocatello and attended Pocatello High School. He was always quick to make friends. He loved football and began to excel at rapping. He practiced all the time. During his late teens and early 20's he moved around a bit. While he lived in the Victor and Driggs, Idaho area he learned his trade as a carpenter. He then moved to West Virginia where he met Martia Dermer, and together they had two beautiful daughters, Kiersten and Starla Day. They parted ways and Travis moved back to Pocatello.

Travis and his high school sweetheart, Jamie Nelson reunited and began their lives together. They moved to Victor, where again, his carpentry work excelled. While they were there, his baby girl, Aurora Heavenly-Grace Day was born. They later returned to Pocatello. Travis loved and bragged about his three beautiful girls to whoever would listen. The pride showed on his face every time he mentioned them.

Travis loved his family! He spent time with the kids in the family and was Uncle T to many. He touched so many lives along his short journey and will be greatly missed.

Travis is survived by his three daughters, Kiersten, Starla, and Aurora Heavenly-Grace Day; fiancée, Jamie Nelson, Pocatello; parents, Dennis and Starlyn Day, Green Springs, WV; step-father, Kevin Colvin, Inkom, ID; brother, Justin Day, of Maryland; Martia Dermer, and two nephews, Casen and Mason Day.
